CHQ News :Contempt Petition regarding upgradation of Grade Pay of Inspector Posts w.e.f 01.01.2006 ..... Updates

All our members are well aware that Association has filed Contempt Petition bearing No. C.P/180/00137/2016 before Hon'ble CAT Ernakulam Bench in OA No.  180/00289/2013 regarding up-gradation of Grade Pay of Inspector Posts w.e.f 01.01.2006.

The copy of Affidavit filed by Mr  Abhay N Sahay (the representative of respondent) Under Secretary in the Implementation Cell,  Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance in reply to our Associations Contempt Petition and thereafter copy of Affidavit filed by Association (Petitioners/Applicants) are placed herewith for kind information of members.  In this contempt petition the petitioners are Shri Vilas Ingale GS, Shri Permanand Kumar ASP PMU Postal Directorate and Shri Niranjan Kumarof, IP CEPT Mysore. On behalf all petitioners, Shri Niranjan Kumar who is 3rd petitioner has permitted to file contempt petition. CHQ has to continue fight till to achieve the desired goal and therefore Association need money. 

It is fact that all IP/ASPs and Offg. PS 'B' officers took good amount of arrears of 7CPC and many assured that they will willingly donate the amount to CHQ, but response is very very poor. 

Now-a-days, everyone is asking about the progress of cadre restructuring. Except few, no one is helping CHQ. Many IPs/ASPs has not enrolled them self as member of Association and not paid monthly subscriptions years together and therefore they have not right to ask any question to CHQ and to its members.

The Association has already appealed to all members to donate some money (not less than Rs.1000/-) to CHQ to strengthen the fund but response was very poor. It is therefore requested to all members to credit the amount voluntarily in the following account and send photocopy of pay-in-slip on whatsApp to GS on his No. 09869417961 with name, designation and office address to enable him to publish on the CHQ blog. There is no completion to any body.
